Launching Debug Tools

We're excited to announce that Debug Tools are now available for all cloud customers, and will be available in the next on-premise version! Debug Tools are a suite of devtools that enable you to investigate and debug errors in your Retool apps.

With Debug Tools, you can:

:warning: Get notified every time there’s an error

:mag_right: Quickly understand why and how errors happened

:flashlight: See a timeline of events to debug parallel queries

:zap: Inspect the state of all properties, including dependencies

You can access Debug Tools by clicking the bug icon on the right of the new status bar at the bottom of every Retool app, or by using the CTRL+` keyboard shortcut. Check out our docs or blog post to learn more, and feel free to send any feedback to We’re excited to make debugging your apps quicker and easier than ever before!

I was really enjoying these new debug tools for a couple days but since seeing it when it was released it has since disappeared and not come back.

Has it been postponed? Is there a way for me to re enable debug?

Hi @biz, Could you share a screenshot of what you see on the right side of the bottom panel on your editor screen?

Great, thanks for sharing that screenshot! On your Settings > Beta page, have you turned on the Debug console and status bar?
